Our history: learning from the past

“Behind every successful business there is someone who has made a courageous decision.”
(Peter Ferdinand Drucker)

Alpie passato

1971. Passionate about mechanics, the young and enterprising Albino Favero founded the company to exploit the first requests for mechanisation from the mushroom growing world.

Comments Cornelio Favero, General Manager of ALPIE: “I still remember my father’s determination while creating the first compost block line and his enthusiasm when the second one was exported to Holland”.

Founded in the heart of Italy’s main mushroom production district, ALPIE was soon known the whole world over. In the 80s and 90s, Cornelio accompanied his machines from Australia to Venezuela and brought new life to the company with his wife Anna.

Building the present

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

Today Cornelio’s experience meets the resourcefulness of his children: precise and organised, Davide is the driving force behind the constant improvement of products and technical solutions, while Giulia, dynamic and tireless, closely follows international customers.

“We all have different characters and aptitudes,” says Cornelio, “but we have one thing in common: a passion for what we do every day that allows us to always find a common path to pursue. In recent years a new phase has begun in ALPIE with an ambitious goal: to put customers and their uniqueness ever more at the centre, offering extreme customisation and a fast service”.

Imagining the future

“What do I see in the future? A great many challenges to face and just as much to learn”, says Giulia. “Working for a sector based on the concept of a circular economy and bringing healthy, sustainable food to people’s tables makes me feel an active participant in building a better world.”

“We are aware that the success and well-being of our customers is also our own” adds Davide. “This is why we work every day on the growth of our staff, trying to transmit the passion that is in ALPIE’s DNA to always find new solutions and new approaches“.
